When I saw that metal gods Judas Priest were ten minutes from my house, I knew right away I was going. When I saw that fellow NWOBHM legends Saxon were also on the bill, I bought tickets right away.
Technical death metal legends GODLESS TRUTH have announced their next album, the first new release since reforming in 2016.
Behold the pilot episode of what is temporarily being named ‘Metal Ramblings’. “Mostly Death…” discusses a new album from a band I just discovered, Century Media Records and their upcoming black/death release, an LGBTMN pink metal band, and a few quick opinions some many not agree with. Oh, and stay tuned to the end for a mind blowing Instacart realization caught on camera because who the hell was messaging me over the span of twenty minutes. Enjoy…
A good friend of mine, Ryan Mullaney, decided to be a son of a bitch and rub in that he was going to check out the recent North America tour with Lacuna Coil, Epica, and Insomnium. The aspiring writer and photographer offered to shoot over the pictures he took for publication on this very site, which is what you will be seeing in three different parts. Up first? Epica.
Originally formed under the name Khaossos between 2014 and 2015, Kval stands as a one-man atmospheric black metal act from Finland. With a handful of releases behind, the man known simply as Kval has signed a deal with Hypnotic Dirge Records to unleash the entity’s debut self-titled album. However, it’s not a simple follow-up to the previous entity’s 015 full-length Kuolonkuu, but rather a re-imagining of that very release. A rebirth, if you will. And ahead of it’s release I was given the opportunity to shoot some questions over to the mastermind himself, as well as debut the first song off said offering.
Ukrainian blackened death metal group NordWitch may be a relatively young act having only formed in 2015, but their recent actions have been causing waves in the underground with their music and live shows. Blending together ideas of satanism, occultism, and Scandinavian mythology, this female fronted act has earned a loyal fanbase up to this point, and its bound to grow. For 2016 they have signed a deal with US based Dark Rituals Records and Russia’s own Satanath Records to unleash their debut album Mørk Profeti, and thanks to Satanath and Darzamadicus Records, as well as Grand Sounds PR, Apochs.net is proud to present the debut of “Dominion” from that very album.
